From driverless cars to voice recognition, Artificial Intelligence (AI), is progressing rapidly and has become part of our everyday lives. With the research and development of new technologies, AI is fast becoming an essential part of how businesses and institutions operate. It is also becoming a vital part of the Industry 4.0 vision with the government estimating that AI could contribute £232bn to the UK economy by 2030. On our MSc Artificial Intelligence course, you’ll be taught by academics who are experts in the area, many of whom are currently conducting research into the subject as part of our Centre for Advanced Computational Science research group. This ensures that our curriculum is based on research-informed content at the leading edge of this fast-paced field. This course will build on your existing computing knowledge. We aim to equip you with the fundamental principles of AI to be able to critically evaluate the theories, techniques, tools and systems used in the field. And the interdisciplinary applications, allowing you to specialise in this exciting, developing area. You’ll also complete an in-depth masters project with the support of our academic and technical team. By the time you complete our postgraduate degree in AI, you’ll be well placed to succeed in this high growth industry and ready to tackle the challenges facing businesses. Optional Placement Year This course is available with an optional industrial placement year, giving you the chance to tailor your knowledge to suit a specific industry or skill-set. This is an excellent opportunity to put theory into practice and gain transferable workplace skills, providing a real boost to your CV when you graduate.
